Have you ever dreamed of living like a country music star? Well, this could be your chance — if you have several million dollars to drop, that is. The home of the fictional character Rayna James from the TV series “Nashville” is currently on the market. And let’s just say, the sprawling estate is even more stunning than it looked on the small screen.
Here’s a closer look at the impressive mansion and its ties to the “Nashville” series.
‘Nashville’ Filmed Several Scenes There
The Nashville home served as the home of Connie Britton’s country music star character, Rayna James, and her family on “Nashville,” which aired first on ABC and later on CMT. Many early scenes from the show were shot in and around the home, although filming was later moved to a set.
The Home Was An Inspiration For Some Of The Show’s Sets
According to The Boot, “Nashville” filmed at the mansion for several of its early episodes. However, producers later opted to replicate some of the house’s room on a set rather than filming on location. It’s easy to see why they chose this home for inspiration, given its stunning design and seemingly endless amenities.
The Home Is Even Bigger Than It Looked On TV
“Nashville” fans only got small glimpses of the house on television, but it turns out it’s even bigger than you probably imagined. Located at 1358 Page Road, the “European Village”-style property is a whopping 20,533 square feet. It’s designed to function as either a sprawling family home or as an event venue.
The Main Floor Boasts Plenty of Family Spaces
The main floor has several common areas for a family. It boasts a spacious living room, dining room and kitchen (more on that later). It also has a stunning formal library that’s perfect for book-lovers. The master suite is on the main floor as well.
Each Bedroom Is Basically Its Own Suite
According to the listing, the house features a total of six bedrooms. Five rooms are spacious en suites. One is essentially a private apartment with its own entry and separate living, dining, kitchen and laundry spaces.
The Master Suite Has A Ton Of Amenities
The home’s master suite boasts plenty of lavish features, including plank pine hardwood floors, antique wooden doors with antique shell motifs and French doors that lead to a terrace. And that’s not even including the master bath, which has marble floors, his-and-hers water closets, an oversized steam shower and a whirlpool.
It Has An Open Kitchen
If there’s one room that fans saw on “Nashville” the most, it was probably the kitchen. Rayna, Deacon and the girls often congregated around the expansive island for breakfast and family talks. And it’s easy to see why — the room has a warm, inviting feel, with wood beams across the ceiling and brick walls.
There Are Plenty of Bathrooms to Choose From
The house features a total of 11 bathrooms. Of the nearly dozen options, eight of them are full baths. The other three are half-baths.
You Can Hit The Gym On The Second Floor
The second floor features the other four bedrooms and the private apartment, but that’s not all. You’ll also find an exercise room up there, so you can work out without leaving the house. There’s also an office to allow for some private workspace, as well as a playroom.
The House Features Some Rare Artifacts
The estate was decorated with some rare, one-of-a-kind artifacts. Among them: a mantle that originally came from the former estate of fashion designer Gianni Versace. The house also features some other unique details, including a porte-cochere and a stacked-stone entry.
Other Shows Have Filmed At The House
“Nashville” isn’t the only country music-related show to feature this beautiful home. The house has also made other notable TV appearances in the past. In 2017, it served as the setting for the opening to the 2017 Country Music Awards.
It’s Also Been The Setting Of A Super Bowl Ad
The house also has an unexpected tie to the Super Bowl. It served as the location for a 2016 Skittles commercial that aired during the annual sporting event. The ad starred Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler.
It Has Stunning Architectural Details
In addition to its unique artifacts, the house features plenty of other remarkable details. When you walk in, you’ll be left stunned by the amazing floating spiral staircase, antique pine flooring and stacked-stone and carved columns.
It Has Its Own Wine Cellar
Another impressive bonus feature of the house: the climate-controlled wine cellar located in the basement. The cellar has beamed ceilings and enough room to hold 3,000 bottles. It also features a wine tasting area, barrels inlaid right into the walls and lighted displayed niches.
You’ll Never Run Out Of Parking Space
You won’t ever have to worry about finding a parking space in this house. Onsite parking can accommodate over 300 (!!) cars. That, coupled with its landscaped lawns and manicured gardens, makes it ideal for hosting a large function or event.
Guests Can Relax On The Huge Screened-In Porch
The house boasts a large, lovely screened porch, including a table for dining. It has brick floors and a fireplace in an alcove that makes for a perfectly cozy sitting area. Plenty of seating is available on the porch, making it an ideal place to entertain.
It’s Perfect For Horse-Lovers
Love horseback riding? This house features a two-stall barn, complete with tack and feed rooms, on its property. It also has a path leading directly to the Percy Warner Park Natural Preserve, if you feel like spending a little time in nature.
Don’t Forget To Take A Swim In The Pool
If you were thinking that the only thing missing from this stunner of a house is a pool, don’t worry — it has that, too! It boasts a beautiful pool and cabana. An outdoor fireplace sits adjacent to the pool, making it a perfect place to unwind after a day of tanning and swimming.
The Basement Also Features A Game Room
Aside from a full-fledged wine cellar, the basement also features a billiards room. It’s a perfect place to play a game of pool and lounge around. And yes, there’s yet another fireplace in this room as well.
The Home Is An Ideal Party Space
Practically every element of this house is designed to host an epic party. If the wide-ranging parking, game room and wine cellar weren’t enough to convince you, there’s also the amazing outdoor area, including the screened porch and pool. Plus, the house features enough sit-down dining for 50-plus guests.
The House Sits On Picturesque Grounds
The house sits on six acres of land. It features impeccably landscaped lawns and gardens that make a lovely backdrop for various events and functions. In addition to the stunning landscape, there are plenty of outdoor amenities to keep you entertained, including the pool and barn.
The House Has An Important Place In ‘Nashville’ History
Fans of the “Nashville” series will recognize the house as an important place in the show’s history — not only because it once filmed there, but also because it served as the inspiration for the home of the main character, Rayna James. As viewers know, Rayna dies somewhat suddenly in season five, and her family is left to cope with their shock and grief. Many of their struggles are chronicled in scenes around the house, particularly in the kitchen and bedrooms, throughout the second half of season five and season six.
How Much Is It Worth?
If you were thinking that all of this must come for a hefty price tag, you’d be right. The home is currently listed for a whopping $15,999,999. That comes out to about $779 per square foot.
It Was Previously Listed At An Even Higher Price
This isn’t the first time the house has been on the market. The sprawling estate was previously listed in 2017. At the time, its price was set almost $2 million higher, at $17,999,999.
